Residents of the Banks electorate are being invited to take part in SBS's election night television coverage.

SBS is setting up a live cross to the South Hurstville RSL Club on Saturday night where reporter Darren Mara will be interviewing local voters.

Banks is considered a key seat in the 2019 election and is held by the Liberal's David Coleman, Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs with a margin of 1.4 per cent.

The Banks electorate extends across the southern parts of the Canterbury-Bankstown and Georges River council areas and includes East Hills, Revesby, Panania, Picnic Point, Padstow, Riverwood, Peakhurst, Penshurst, Lugarno, Mortdale, Oatley, South Hurstville and Allawah.

"As part of our live coverage we are looking for members of the general community - from all sides of politics - from the electorate of Banks to speak with," SBS producer Naveen Razik said.

"We are looking to get some locals together to get their thoughts on the election, the parties and did it go the way it was expected.

"We plan to be at the club from 6pm and stay until the seat is decided."

There will be regular live crosses from the SBS studio to the club as the count progresses.

Residents who want to participate in SBS's live coverage of the election count in the Banks electorate should contact Naveem Razik at Naveen.razik@sbs.com.au or phone 0448 409 588 to RSVP.

They should be at the South Hurstville RSL Club, 72 Connells Point Road, South Hurstville from 6pm.
